We have a biosecurity protocol here at Top Hill Farm. We tested the entire flock in January 2022 for CL, OPP, and Johnes. Everyone was negative for CL, OPP and Johnes (blood or PCR test results). We retested In May 2023 and everyone was negative for CL, OPP and Jones.
We quarantine all new animals for 30 days, perform Biosecurity testing, and run fecals prior to releasing them into the flock.
